Before Your Massage:
Please download, print and fill out our client intake form and bring it with you to your appointment.
If you are a new client and have not filled out a client intake form yet, please arrive 10 minutes early to your appointment. Returning clients are encouraged to arrive a little early, but they will be seen at their appointment time.
If you are having Thai or Myokinesthetic work, please wear loose, comfortable clothing. For table massage, you will be asked to disrobe to your own level of comfort when the massage therapist leaves the room. Many clients are comfortable taking off all their clothing and since you will be covered except for the area being worked on, that’s fine with us. However, if you are more comfortable leaving your underwear on, that’s fine, too. For women, we do suggest removing your bra just so we can give your whole back the attention it deserves!
Please bathe the same day as your appointment and refrain from using any perfumes or colognes as many practitioners and clients in our office have sensitivities to these. However, using deodorant is encouraged and appreciated!
During Your Massage:
If anything is uncomfortable, distracting, or not utterly enjoyable, please communicate this to your massage therapist. This can include:
Pressure or type of massage strokes
Room or table temperature
Choice of music or lighting
After Your Massage:
Please try to take it easy after your massage! It is ideal if you can rest for a little while before returning to your regular activities.
It is common to have some muscle soreness the day following your massage. You can ice the sore areas for a few minutes if you like to help decrease the discomfort.
Because massage increases circulation and aids in flushing out toxins, we strongly encourage you to drink extra water the day of and the day after your massage.
We will contact you a few days after your massage to see how you are feeling. However, if you have any questions or concerns before then, please reach out to us! We are here to help. Enjoy your massage!
